Event Description

Impact Loading and Testing and Avoiding Premature or Unexpected Plastic Failures

While in service, plastic materials are subjected to many different types of mechanical stress. One common type of stress that is typically severe on plastics is rapid impact loading. The rate at which loading is applied, otherwise known as the strain rate, is a very important factor in the performance of a plastic component. Impact, together with snap fit assembly, and rapid pressurization are the most common forms of rapid loading or high strain rate mechanisms.

Join this session with expert speaker Jeffrey A. Jansen, to understand how and why impact and other high strain rate events affect plastics. You’ll get the knowledge and information to avoid premature or unexpected plastic failures. The session will review how and why snap fit installations can be the most rigorous mechanical demands required of a plastic component. You will also learn about the different types of impact testing to understand the effect of high strain rate events on plastics.
